Hard HARD Pass. This was just a pain to read. I’ve seen some reviews who loves it and some who don’t. For me this book had an okay writing style so it was pretty easy to follow, and that was technically the only thing i liked about it.
What i didn’t like about it? The Main character Richard goes around complainging and sulking because yes the dates dosen’t go that well, he gets a writers block ect ect and that life isin’t fair. But he complains all the time! And when friends tries to talk to him about what goes on in his life, he attacks – wordly so. Then get upset because they try to care and try to figure out why he’s not in a good mood. I’m sorry, if one don’t want to talk about it, fine. Don’t. But don’t attack ones who want to help you! Though, when Patrick hopes he’s not bisexual i didn’t like him either, because what dose that matter if he was? or is?
And it dosen’t stop there, Enter Anne, friend, work.buddy and one-sided with being in love with him. He’s gay, but still she’s in love with him and dosen’t seem to care about the tiny fact that he’s gay. And she’s needy, and oddly so – and when he dosen’t respond she basically acts as a girlfriend a very needy one who demmands to know what happends ect. Richard dose this thing where he leads her on, knowing how she is – or maybe he don’t see it? But sleeping with someone you don’t love or have romantic feelings for ? He gave Anne hope were there was none..
And Blake, his lover-boyfriend ish. Tried to give him so many chances even though Richard didn’t deserve so with all the move in thing, lying ect. Blake tried to make their future bright and Richard kind of… didn’t? Sometimes very few times, it was light and happy… and then…. not. Richard didn’t treat him good.
I honestly don’t understand why Anne kind of «took him back.» But that’s me.
“This can’t be happening. I’m Cursed. I’m the Albus Severus Potter of the muggle world” – Riley Hart.
I liked Riley and Cathrine a lot, and the change between them was also pretty fun. Though I kind of found myself shipping Riley with Owen rather than Cathrine, don’t get me wrong, it’s nothing wrong with Cat at all. I just thought they’d be cute together. Anyway, this was a very fun and easy read, I was cheering for them to get their morp I – mean Prom! Hehe :p all the way, and honestly I could’nt put the book down and had to see it through all the way. But then Jordon came in, and I shipped him and Cat so hard. I made internal squeals of happiness. It was just adorable, funny and cute – honestly a perfect read!
I keep wondering if my expectations were too high for this one? I had hope for lots of laughs, some raging and sadness. But I felt kind of empty? I had hoped this would be awesome and I would not want to put it down, but when it hit the 50%’s mark I was not really… interested anymore? The whole book felt meh, and Lu who comes obsessed with a couple who’s ending? – sort of. Just…idk, I didn’t care about it at all. Plus, sometimes she moped around Leo, but not that much anyhow? and there was Pete who were slightly interesting. But I don’t know? I craved more? I skimmed the rest half, just because I’m a stubborn one, who wanted to see the book through at the end. Sadly, the book wasn’t for me. I couldn’t connect nor care for any of the characters in the book. Cal seemed overly romantic, which would have been fine – if he wasn’t so “perfect” especially in Lu’s eyes, I guess? I just ended up giving it 1 star, because….in the end, I were both confused and bored.
As you guys must have noticed, i haven’t been writing any weekly update or reviews since 4th of august. And i have been extremely tired and had anoxious days. So i’m going to take a break from the blog.
So, i don’t know yet when i might make another review, but don’t worry. i’ll be back 🙂
14:15 PM I’ve found my yoghurt and are ready to dive back into Carry On! 😀
18:20 PM I have now finished Carry on, and loved re-visiting Baz and Simon, are now stoked to read nr 2. c: Now i’m actually reading Fifthy Shades of Grey wich is also a re-read for me. So, that’s a 3# book for me, at this read-athon.
23:15 PM 3hours left of the readathon, give or take. And now i wonder about that read-a-thons isin’t exactly for me, i wonder if i thought it would be funnier than it actually was. I mean, i love reading i do, but having a read-a-thon, kind of feels a little forced? and it might have been more fun if i was up at the same time as everyone else or found someone to BuddyRead with. But, i didn’t know before i tried.
02:10 AM and so came the end of the read-a-thon for me. I managed to get to 74% of the Fifty shades of grey book. So i’d say it was an okay 24 hours, even though i didn’t read full of the times, and wonder if it is for me.
Though i might try, another time. 24 in 48. Maybe. we’ll see.
Mind you, i haven’t done this readathon before, but this is just an update on thoughts and books i read and other things i do. Might add pages and if i finish the books and whatnot.
02:00 AM – Start time Woho, start time for me! I kind of wishes it wasn’t so late. But, oh well! I don’t have a particular tbr, i’m just taking what i feel and want to read. I’m going to read Highway to Heaven or in norwegian «Livet, Motorsykler og andre umilige prosjekter» Wich i could’nt find in english or norwegian at GR. but i just added the swedish version.
04:00 AM – Finished with a book I’ve finished with Highway to Heaven, wich i ended up rated 2 stars. So, meh. The cats are going a little crazy atm haha. Decided to start Carry on by Rainbow Rowell, this is a re-read for me but just in time for the soon to be next release! ❤
05:00 AM – Sleep calls! I’m heading to bed now, my eyes are too heavy to read more.
05:30 AM – 14:00 PM I ended up tossing and turning and not having the greatest of night, tossing and turning so sleep did not come easily and that put a dent in my readathon.
On the come up is my second book i’ve read from the author Angie Thomas, and let me just tell you now – WOW. Even though that «gangsta» talk and sometimes how the characters acted in a way, was somewhat wierd to me, did it not stop me from liking it. I loved it from page to page, Bri or Brianna is fierce, smart-mouthed and badass, but also emotional, insecure and sweet… i just liked her so much, and could relate to what she thought and wanted. This book made me laugh, cry and slightly rage – i connected with Bri the whole time and this was so badass! I loved the rapping she did and could hear how she would have rapped in my head. The only bad thing i has to say is? I’m seriously sad because it’s over! 😦 I want more!
I make a small list, just because i felt for it: Sonny – I’m so happy he got his, happy ending? ish? at least he dared to chase it c: Malik – Was tbh, mad at him ALOT. But I understood what and why. Curtis – He’s such an adorable dork and he and Bri fits so perf ❤ Trey – Such a awesome big brother 🙂 Jay – Their mom is also fierce, and wants to take care of everything herself, even though it’s hard. She loves them, alot. Aunt Pooh – She has to decide who she wants to be, even though it’s hard.
